Recently when I found Space Invaders in Minecraft, I thought i’d seen everything. It turns out I was wrong. Now here’s Pacman. Created by Magib1, it’s still in development, but looks promising. The video above is a demonstration of the ghost AI working properly that was posted on reddit earlier today.

The ghosts act like they did in the original Pacman:

  • Blinky (Red) targets Pacman directly
  • Pinky (Pink) targets a cell 4 blocks in front of Pacman, except when Pacman is facing up, in which case Pinky targets 4 blocks up and 4 blocks to the left (due to an original overflow error in the game – yes, I’ve included that too!)
  • Inky (Blue) targets 2x the vector from Blinky to two blocks in front of Pacman in the direction he’s facing
  • Clyde (Orange) targets Pacman if Pacman is outside a 7-block radius, and targets his home corner if Pacman is within a 7-block radius

While the map is still in development, it’s a great example of what’s possible in Minecraft. I’m looking forwards to playing it when it comes out, and you’ll be able to read our review when it does.
